Why do I need a Homestead® Web site? A Web site allows you to publish information and easily communicate and collaborate with other people of common interests, regardless of technical expertise or geographic location. Homestead Web sites are used for all kinds of things: to launch a small e-commerce business, to plan a wedding or high school reunion, to share pictures with family members, to publish a newsletter for a non-profit organization, to collaborate on homework assignments and more. With Homestead, you can either build your site from scratch, or use customizable templates tailored for small businesses, clubs, hobbies and interests, events and holidays or teens to get you started. We also offer tips and tricks to help members think of new and creative ways to use their Web sites.

How do I build a Homestead site? To build a personal Web site, members use Homestead SiteBuilder, a drag-and-drop editor that offers complete flexibility and ease-of-use. Members can start with a blank page or one of more than 40 customizable pre-built templates and then drag and drop and customize Elements on their site. Members can also incorporate digital photos, graphics and files through the file importer.

Building a really great website is as easy as using the web browser you’re using right now.
